  Managerial Economics - THE NATURE OF MANAGERIAL ECONOMICS, APPLICATIONS OF MANAGERIAL ECONOMICS
Managerial economics is a discipline that is designed to provide a solid foundation of economic understanding in order for business managers to make well-informed and well-analyzed managerial decisions.
While managerial economics is helpful in making optimal decisions, one should be aware that it only describes the predictable economic consequences of a managerial decision.
Managerial decisions both in the short run and in the long run are partly shaped by the market structure relevant to the firm.

 COB Managerial Economics Emphasis
The important thing to understand about finding a job with an economics degree is that employers are less interested in whether you have a specific skill, like being able to find the intersection of the supply and demand curve, than they are in the package of skills that people with economics degrees have.
Economics students also learn how to figure out what the right questions to ask are about business situations, solve problems, work with numbers, and a variety of other skills.
Economics majors can also apply for entry level positions in business as long as there isn’t a specific requirement to know marketing or some other skill which an economics major without a dual major might not learn.

Chapter 1 is therefore concerned with explaining why managerial economics is important and useful as an area of study, how it relates to other disciplines, what its core areas are, and the methods of analysis which it uses.
The main branch of economic theory with which managerial economics is related is microeconomics, which deals essentially with how markets work and interactions between the various components of the economy.
There is one main difference between the emphasis of microeconomics and that of managerial economics: the former tends to be descriptive, explaining how markets work and what firms do in practice, while the latter is often prescriptive, stating what firms should do, in order to reach certain objectives.

  Infostat, cargo-cult science and the policy sausage-machine
Managerial influence on the NHS was initially dependent upon various crude threats (resource cutbacks, closures, sacking etc.) and the personal qualities of the manager.
Since managerial authority was not backed up by any convincing expertise, and because solidarity among managers was undermined by short term contracts and competition among themselves, there was a desperate search for a technique of management that would reliably impress clinicians and politicians alike, between whom managers were uncomfortably sandwiched in the NHS hierarchy.
The numerous political pressures and managerial judgments are shielded from critique by an elaborate facade of pseudo-evidence and quasi-mathematical impartiality.
